I cut potatoes thinly and cook at 400 for 30 minutes in olive oil. You can also make other veggie chips that way. Safe and good. I can't eat processed foods. I'm very sensitive.

For potato chips I can only eat plain Wavy Lays or Kettle chips. I can't eat the Stax because they have soy. For corn chips I make my own most of the time using Mission Corn tortillas. I spray with olive oil, cut with a pizza cutter and bake them on a baking sheet with holes in it at 325 for 12-15 minutes or until crispy. I don't buy the bagged ones very often but I have been able to eat Garden of Eatin blue corn chips, Grande Restaurant style Gluten free and sometimes Fritos. Fritos however made me sick last itme I ate them--maybe I ate too much corn that day? I just threw up about 20 minutes later and had heartburn. I didn't have a gltuen reaction but I haven't eaten them since.

Late July Organic chips might be worth looking at. They are GFCO certified, so if lay's staxx work with you, I would imagine these should as well. ( http://www.latejuly.com/ )

I haven't tried them myself, but my son seems to like them. :-)

Both my daughter and I had a terrible reaction to fritos before, too. She's not sensitive to corn much, best I can tell, but we both got our gluten reaction to that one like crazy (before I knew I was super sensitive).

Although I was talking with the frito's company today and the young man said that while they didn't test their products for gluten before, they have started testing them periodically now. It's still <20ppm only, but better than it was!

And the really interesting part. We start talking super sensitivity comes up, and he mentions that one of his good friends is sensitive to lower concentrations than 20ppm, too, and keeps wishing for lower ppm standards.

heh - super sensitives are like ninjas. :ph34r: We are everywhere. :lol:

Interesting to know! So perhaps my sensitive system did detect the gluten and throwing up prevented me from getting the rest of my symptoms. I have reacted by throwing up one other time--when I was a given regualar pasta at Olive Garden and told it was gluten-free. Throwing up that time did not prevent me from getting gluten symptoms however--probably because of the large amount versus just a trace in the Fritos. :ph34r: We need to start the super sensitive ninja club! :lol:

Fritos were sometimes okay and sometimes not when I tried them years ago. I took them out.

Food Should Taste Good chips are AMAZING!!! Like replacement wheat thins! YUUUUUUMMMMMMMMMY!!!

I also like Boulder Canyon Chips. http://www.bouldercanyonfoods.com/

They write gluten free right on the front of the bag! Bless their lovely hearts. And their lovely chips!

And I've never had a problem with the Mission chips either.

It's the small indulgences that we must find that help us enjoy, right? :P

Well, I must revise my above statement. However, eating half a bag of chips is really never a good idea, but what's done is done. Poor Boulder Canyon Chips are now (at the very least) on my caution list, if I can restrict myself to less than 1/2 a bag. So they probably won't be bought again! I did notice an increased selection at the store, and the increase was of non-gluten free items. So oh well. I'm off to go feed my hungry self. Again.

I noticed that no one really mentioned Kettle Brand Chips. It is listed on the back of the package if they are gluten-free or not. I think my husband does well with those but after reading the posts from people I wonder if we are monitoring his diet close enough. He is having tests run this week because he never feels well anymore. It's almost hard to pinpoint if he's been contaminated unless he has the specific symptoms that we know very well.

My daughter,a super sensitive, had problems with Kettle chips. The rest of us didn't try them. I got them because they had been recommended for super sensitives. I noticed that they make both gluten containing chips and gluten free chips. Does anyone know if they are made in separate facilities?

Did your husband do well when he first went gluten free? I did very well for close to 2 years,but have really struggled for quite some time now. If our patterns are similar, maybe we could help each other figure this thing out.

I have problems with Kettle brand chips but I've determined it's safflower oil that is the problem for me, not gluten per se. I have trouble with any chip that uses safflower oil.

What I think is that safflower oil may be harvested on gluten-contaminated harvesting equipment or some other method of contamination of the oil Or it could just be the oil itself, but I don't have trouble with other oils.

Called 'em a few weeks back and they said their gluten free chips are made in a gluten-free facility. Every batch tested to <20ppm. Something new since I called a couple years ago is that they now require any company supplying them with flavorings to test the flavorings as < 10 ppm before the company will accept them.

That said, my daughter will get ill off of these too, if she eats too many. A small bowlful seems okay, but she's had 1/2 a bag before and started reacting.

My kids have tried a chip they liked, called Laurell Hill, nacho flavor, that they said reminded them a lot of the Doritos chip that they used to have. This kind:

Laurellhillfoods.com

These chips are GFCO certified, so they should be less of a cc risk than Doritos. :-)

Thanks!

Any other super sensitives doing ok with Lays Stax as GFreeMO mentioned? I would be in heaven if I could find a potato chip that works! As a side note, I made my own potato chips using canola oil. Had gut pain the next day. Might need to try other oils. I've noticed some debate about oils from time to time on this site. The oils may be the source of cc in chips. dilletantesteph has mentioned that she uses olive oil. Will try that next.

    • You're welcome! Yes, I too, hate waiting for lab results. Ugh!
    • I understand this is not a doctor's office and that I need proper testing done to rule out Celiac disease, however, I am stuck waiting until November to even see a GI doctor. So I need some suggestions soon on which test to go for first and what to do as I wait. Also do note, I am 28 years old.

      Right now, the most suspecting culprits to my symptoms have been Gallbadder, Celiac disease, and IBS. I have also been recently diagnosed with pre-diabetes and I am obese.  My Ultrasound and CT scan have all come up as normal and no signs of gallstones. However, I was in extreme pain as my upper abdomen was examined during the ultra sound. My white blood cell count also seems to be high at 12,000 but all blood work came back normal for liver and everything else.

      Symptoms included are: diarrhea
      yellow-stools (Sometimes foul smelling but always sink)
      light gnawing pain in area a few inches above belly button
      burning in chest
      sometimes pain below upper right rib cage.
      Tenderness all around the upper abdomen, but more so on the right and center.
      burping frequently after meals
      Gassy
      bloating in abdomen The pains used to come and go for the past few years as something very mild, but then the yellow stools happen at least four months ago and at a constant rate. Everyday it is either yellow or orange.  Sometimes the stools are lose and other times they are not. Two months in, I was finally diagnosed with pre-diabetes and have been having a strict low calorie and non fatty diet.

      So far the upper right pain has subsided but the pain above my belly button would continue. The gassy and bloated feeling would come and go as well. I get severe heart burn after almost every meal. But I felt it especially after eating whole wheat sandwiches or whole wheat pasta. I however don't feel it when I eat a Nature Valley granola bar, or pack of peanut butter crackers. I also had a chicken and vegetable stir fry with soy sauce cooked in that also had little effect on me. A bowl of cereal also made the heart burn act up pretty bad. I sometimes feel numb or light headed after various meals. Especially larger ones. In fact, it seems the more I eat, the worse I feel. But the less in the stomach, the more the pain above my belly button starts to act up.

      It is usually in the morning and afternoon I feel the most with gas and bloating. Especially after any large meals from the previous day. Despite the diet and work outs I have had, nothing has changed the stools. However, taking fish oil pills has greatly reduced the pain in my upper abdomen as well as the pain  in the the area above my belly button. My question now is, is there a very likely chance of this being celiac disease? Should I go on a gluten free diet to test since I Have to wait so long? Also, which test should I ask the doctor for first, as it will take a GREAT deal of time to pay off each one. Colonoscopy, HIDA scan, or endoscopy. 

      Again, I understand this isn't a site to get compete medical advice or to know exactly what my illness is, but I am trying to narrow down the possibility or what is most likely. If this has a chance of being celiac disease, I would rather know sooner than later.
    • Thank you very much for all the info Squirmingitch. The doctor told me as we were talking he was going to order some tests with urine so I don't know why he didn't mark that. Maybe he forgot as we were talking? Duly noted about the bladder Cancer to watch out for too. Doctor said it will take about a week to get the lab results back usually from this lab. The wait will seem like forever I'm sure. Yes I will press to have the other tests done too if this one comes back negative.
    • http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Was your hubs tested for total IgA to see if he's IgA deficient? Read this thread: http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/83660
    • Yes, bone density problems are all part of the celiac "umbrella" so to speak and yes, osteoporosis tends to happen more rapidly and at earlier ages than normal when malabsorption is happening. At age 43, it's not normal to have osteoporosis as you describe so that's another part of the jigsaw puzzle. Time to receive blood test results back from the doc are entirely dependent on the particular lab they were sent to. Yep, it's time for you to start keeping a very close check on the PSA in light of your father having had prostrate cancer. I would think you should get a PSA every year. I really would have liked to see him do a urinalysis. With the prostrate cancer your father had, it would seem a close watch should be kept on you for bladder cancer as well. The first symptom of that is blood in the urine but it's generally microscopic before you're ever able to actually see it. That happens to be the 8th most common cancer in men & it's moving up in the rankings. I know this because my hubs had it. The good news is that it's also one of the easiest and most successfully treated provided it's caught early. Certainly starting @ age 50, men should see a urologist every year. BTW, in the last year before I found out I was celiac, I turned up with microscopic blood in my urine. I got it checked out thoroughly since I know about bladder cancer & all tests, ultrasounds, cystoscopy, CT scan etc... turned out fine. The docs were stumped & finally said, "apparently that's just what your body does". Guess what? That's not "just" what MY body does. Once I went gluten-free, I have had no more microscopic blood in my urine. Interesting eh? Before now I didn't realize you are in Canada. The doc didn't do the full celiac panel but I understand the initial screening protocols in Canada only order the TTG but if that comes back negative be sure & press for the full panel as cyclinglady said. We have several here who tested like cyclinglady so it's not a rare thing, it's just not the norm. I'm glad he's doing the B-12 & Ferritin -- those can be big clues.
